Cheese of the Month: Wisconsin Limburger


by Wisconsin Cheese


Whether you love it or don’t particularly have an appetite for it, we can all agree that Wisconsin limburger is legendary both in smell and flavor. Hailed as “The King of Stinky Cheese,” limburger even has an official queen: Stephanie Klett was named the first-ever Limburger Queen at the 2014 Green County Cheese Days.

Originally produced to complement the strong flavor of game meat, limburger has an assertive taste that is earthy and pungent. This one-of-a-kind cheese is brown on the surface – due to the surface-ripening process – and creamy white on the inside. Serve a thick slice the traditional way, on a piece of rye bread with raw onion and mustard.
